the campaign strategy? >> first i think you have to point out in almost every single poll obama is under 50% or at which is warning to the president. he'll pick up very few undecided votes. the ads were information for your own party. the debates are going to start to pay attention and that happens right when early voting starts. so i would suggest that these debates are critical for mitt romney. and, frankly, i think that -- you know, you can say he's not connecting with the middle class. well, obama you could make the argument, hurt the middle class, and think that's a big part of what the debates are going to be about. >> what do you think they're going to be about, chris, and how important are they? >> they're incredibly important. because romney has been so beaten up, they're going to take another look at him. if he does well in his debates, he will energize his campaign. i think you're going to have the campaign being about two things. the defendant is going to have to defend his record and there's going to have to be a very strong case for why his policies are wrong for the country.

"the washington post" poll yesterday, mitt romney is at 50% unfave, 40% faif. barack obama 39% unfavorable, mitt romney's having trouble getting people to like him. that's a very big problem. the other thing that jumped out at me is this question of the bailout by two to one margin -- >> the auto bailout. >> the auto bailout, voters there in ohio like the bailout and said it's been good for the economy. you see this in poll after ohio poll. >> wow, those are some pretty strong numbers. you've been talking to ohio republicans. what are they saying? what are their concerns? are they afraid of losing the state? >> absolutely. do they think mitt romney's losing by ten points in ohio? no. they think the race is closer, but they do acknowledge he is losing. the problem mirrors what you hear nationally from republicans, mitt romney hasn't developed a sus tingt response to this question about the auto bailout. he said let detroit go bankrupt and then took credit for managing bankruptcy and then picked paul ryan as his running mate who was for the bailout. that's a consistent theme tha

of arguement that the polls are skewed toward president obama. what he is doing on the stump now, is it different from what he was doing? enough of change of message? winning formula to turn it around? >> he has to change the pitch on the stump. i don't think it's enough of a change to couner the potency of the 47% video that is part of the president stump speech. if he wants to win the presidency he has to campaign like polls are correct. if he doesn't win ohio and virginia there is a tight sweep to presidency to 270 for him. florida, iowa, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. he is behind in a bunch of them. he has 40 days to do it. a lot of work outside debate. you can't gamble on that. being in ohio is bad news. >> bret: there are some republicans who say listen, it's actually, we don't want to be at this point. but there is something about being behind that would wake people up to say wait a second, we're behind. motivate the troops. the battleground polls, you have to say there oversampling aside he is trailing. >> people are trying to explain away the polls. there is a consistent
